Pretty much says what I have been saying while adding a thin polishing pad to the bottom of the top two trays and carbon. Carbon is not necessary and most will never use it. I replace the carbon with more mechanical filtration.

Well I shouldn't say never. If you need to medicate your aquarium at some point you may want to use it to remove the meds from the water after you are finished medicating. The biggest thing is to try to get the water as clean as possible before it comes in contact with your bio media.
